The tree at Fashion Island
Fashion Island’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony is an annual tradition that attracts thousands of visitors. This year’s ceremony featured Mario Lopez as the emcee and Ellen K from KOST/103.5 FM. The evening also included a 25-minute performance by the Young Americans, a visit from Santa Claus and a photo opportunity. The event was held at the Neiman Marcus/Bloomdale’s Courtyard and the Atrium Lawn.
The 90-foot-tall white fir at Fashion Island weighs 12,000 pounds and is adorned with red and white bulbs. It was lifted into place Nov. 1, 2008, and the event also featured a Broadway-style revue by The Young Americans, a group of 70 members. They performed holiday carols and sang jingles in front of the tree.
Victor’s Custom Christmas Trees in Newport Beach is the company responsible for the tree’s decor. The workers spent two weeks to complete the task. They say the work never gets boring and they enjoy the feedback they receive. The white fir was transported from the Mount Shasta area in Northern California. It was then lifted into the courtyard by crane.
After the installation, the 90-foot-tall Christmas tree arrived at the courtyard on Tuesday. It traveled from Mount Shasta, California, by truck. It is now being decorated with more than 20,000 lights and custom ornaments. It will remain in the courtyard until Jan. 2 when it will be recycled.
The shopping experience at Fashion Island
Fashion Island is a high-energy social hub that is more than just a shopping destination. You’ll find great places to eat, drink coffee and people watch. The area is also architecturally beautiful, boasting fountains and immaculate landscaping. Its year-round great weather makes it a great place to spend time. There are also a variety of craft coffee shops, dessert shops, and restaurants, including one with a cocktail bar.
The shopping experience at Fashion Island is unlike any other in Orange County. It offers luxury shopping in a picturesque outdoor setting. There are nearly 200 boutiques and prestigious department stores, and more than 30 restaurants and movie theaters. It also hosts signature events throughout the year. The mall is also the only one in Orange County to feature a Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdale’s Home Store.
Fashion Island offers a wide array of upscale retail stores, including Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus. It is also home to a variety of designer boutiques, including Rebecca Taylor, Zadig & Voltaire, and K Hall Designs.
Fashion Island’s design ideals are inspired by Renaissance artistic principles, focusing on order, harmony, and perfection. The architecture of the center is influenced by the ideas of an Italian histroric city. While the center is relatively modern, it still retains an air of resort living. Visitors can enjoy the outdoor dining options as well as the casual, resort-like atmosphere.
The renovations at Fashion Island
In the 1980s, the economy boom was fueling the growth of Fashion Island, but the retail scene had changed dramatically by the time of its opening. As a result, the Irvine Company decided to revamp the shopping center to appeal to a new generation of shoppers. The renovations included the demolition of the old Penneys building and rebuilding it as Atrium Court, which now houses a mix of smaller shops, restaurants and a food court. The auto repair shop in the Penneys building became a boutique by couturier Amen Wardy.
Other major additions to the mall’s retail offerings include a conference room and a meeting space to accommodate larger clients. The mall also remodeled its food court to include more familiar names and expanded its cinema. Its new Cinema is operated by Regal Cinemas and features stadium seating with digital sound. It also has luxury seating and a renovated concession area.
In addition to the renovations, the Fashion Island will host a thank-you event for longtime customers. New signage will be installed at the property and more fashion events could take place there. These events would highlight Southern California’s fashion talent. Another plan is to update the signage on the building, but this hasn’t been finished.
The mall also remodeled the mall’s Christmas tree, which is an iconic feature of the shopping center. It is located outside Bloomingdale’s, where it is lit in mid-November. The tree is often ninety feet tall and is recycled after the holidays. Another addition is the koi fish pond, which attracts shoppers. It is located in a shady area, making it a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the holiday spirit.
